LOS ANGELES — Gay distribution company Channel 1 Releasing (C1R) announced that its new safe-sex public service announcement video starring director Chi Chi LaRue was featured on the “Newsnight” program in the U.K.

Centered on the health risks of bareback gay porn, the report featured a two-minute clip from C1R’s controversial PSA starring safer-sex advocate LaRue and highlighted his very public stance against bareback films.

“I couldn’t be happier that our new PSA was featured in this very important report by the BBC,” LaRue said. “Hopefully, American news shows like ‘Nightline,’ ‘Dateline’ or even ‘60 Minutes’ will follow in their footsteps.”

The 15-minute segment also reported on the three models who contracted HIV on a U.K. porn set last October and on the case of British producer, Rufus Ffoulkes, who was jailed last week on a child pornography charge for putting a 16-year-old boy in a bareback gay porn film. It included several interviews with gay community leaders and health professionals, as well as models presently working in the U.K. who have not only appeared in bareback films but have contracted HIV while performing on bareback sets.

“This PSA was important for me, personally, to make,” LaRue said, “because of the issue of model safety on porn sets, as well as to inform consumers that the gorgeous models that they see in these videos are real people and that the danger that they are exposing themselves to in making bareback films is real. I hope that message is heard loud and clear in the U.K., as well as around the world.”

The complete four-minute safe-sex PSA is available for viewing on C1R’s new website www.SafeSexIsHotSex.com and includes an open letter from LaRue on bareback vs. safer sex in gay porn.

The site also provides links that contain the statistical information used in the PSA from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), APLA, AMFAR, AIDS Healthcare Foundation, AIDS Map News (NAM), LAMA and The New York Times.
